Alexa Chung

My current style icon,
Brit grunge girl Alexa Chung.


Style File ; she mixes vintage with the designer, dresses down 'pretty' by adding her own dose of grunge/rock chick quality. Oozes effortless glam; and looks PRETTY DARN GOOD while doing it.
(oh how i love her styyyyyyle!)

She's the main cause for my inspiration nowadays; I'm going for a darker,
not-made-to-cater look, learning to use my amazing opshop finds with the other
stuff I've got in my wardrobe.
Yeah. just bought a well-fitting long black blazer,
and it shall serve me well.
I'll probs wear it till it has moth holes in it or smth :D

and oh, back to reality.
Its Arts and Cultural Dinner tomorrow night,
(YUSS! a chance to dress up and buy new things!)
and I've just spent the last half an hour sewing
purple fabric roses onto the dress that I'm wearing.
Yes, Scott. Its THE DRESS you said that I was
'picking myself' in during New Years.. lol remember?
(Its not my fault that the dress was too big! lol. still is, actually.)
And got the AWESOMEST Gladiator heels to go with it.
:D took me very long to come across those shoes,
(you should've seen me weep on Saturday when the
satin platform pumps a la Yves Saint Laurent
were all sold out across Auckland. )
But i am EXTREMELY happy with them :]
They're sorta like the Louboutin booties that Lily
from BleedForFashion wears.
(Yes those very ones that Ive spent many a time
drooling over.)

and yeah.
will post up pictures of the aforementioned
shoes soon.
Be on the look out for Shoe Porn! ;]

Fashion Fix

So I'm supposed to be studying for Media Studies.
But pfffffft. I've given up.
Since me and Arna have decided to flunk the
make-your-own-flippin-movie assessment,
i guess its fair to say that studying for it doesn't
make up for anything anyway.
So i got her to recommend me some good fashion blogs
to pass my time. haha. STUDYING?!
She was only too happy to hand over a LOOOOONG
list of NYC based edgy fashion blogs over a discussion
of our future opshopping trip. heh.

and now, all thanks to her,
its rekindled my obsession for NYC.
(My obsession started with Gossip Girl and
all its lavishness. sigh, Damn you rich socialites.)
Now I want this sooooooooo bad!
Im not usually big on the pink,
but the hot pink&black combo = ELECTRIC <3

Alexander Wang Boyfriend Blazer w/ geometric cutout.


perfect on every level.
good length and slouchiness. and also roll up sleeves! :]


.. and then we meet the geometric cutout.

I want I want I want it!
So whoever feels charitable enough to buy me
one of these at $599 (USD that is) a pop,
**i shall love you for all eternity!
and might as well throw in a $76 white pocket tee.
in desperate need of RETAIL THERAPHY!
Damn you exam stress.

**immunity for the boyfriend.
he's loved already for being so amazinglyawesome :]
